According to a user questionnaire*, Clova Friends, which was released last year, is used by people of all ages in numerous situations, including on their break and when they wake up. This time, the company have developed a more family-friendly product that people can use regularly by using the character Doraemon.

 

*Details and results of the questionnaire can be found over on the official Clova blog (Japanese).

 

The new Clova Friends mini Doraemon model makes use of all of the previous Clova Friends functions but also introduces Doraemon’s voice. He will answer in various ways when you talk to him, with lines such as “I’m Doraemon. I’m happy to speak to you.” (Translated from Japanese.)

There are 51 secret tools in Doraemon’s conversational arsenal, including unique references such as to his favourite food dorayaki as well as mice which he doesn’t like. For example, if you say to him in Japanese, “It’s hot,” he’ll respond “How about drinking some Eskimo Extract? Whenever you say it’s hot the temperature will feel a cool 3℃.” It’ll feel like you’re having a real conversation with the blue robotic cat himself. You can even request him to sing a song, say a tongue twister and much more. The company are also considering going ahead with more updates for the software in the future, so he’ll be able to do even more things.
